Description

Lillian Russell stands center amid a scene including an African American jockey with the caption: “She’s A Mare And She’s Game”. Lillian Russell was as famous as Sarah Bernhardt in America at the turn of the 20th century, though to my experience relatively few images of Lillian Russell survived in a poster format. (Theater /Stage /Comedy) Minor evidence of sunning. Otherwise clean and linen mounted.
